  • " "
  • Authentic

    A jeanswear term used to describe original qualities found in the denim of our pioneers, like traditional fabric weaves and styling details.

    Bartack

    The sewn-in reinforcements placed at stress points—like zippers and pocket openings—on jeans.

    Broken Twill

    First used by Wrangler in 1964, broken twill denim was a solution to the characteristic twisting effect of regular twill denim (at the time considered to be a "fault" by many). Traditionally, twill is woven either to the right hand or the left, as described above; these methods will cause denim to eventually twist itself after washing due to tension—which is why you might see the outseam of denim twisted to the front or back of the leg. Broken twill avoids this result. Instead of the twill running left or right, broken twill contains no distinct direction and instead alternates right and left, resembling a zigzag pattern.

    Cast

    A term used to describe the shading in denim. Dependent upon the method and type of dye used, a pair of indigo-dyed jeans can have a black, brown, gray, green, red, or yellow cast.

    Chevron

    A natural wear pattern on the inside of the thigh. Created in a similar manner as whiskers.

    Crocking

    The process whereby dye rubs off on skin or other fabric. As indigo remains on the surface of the yarn, color transfer is a particular issue with medium to dark shades of denim.

    Distressed

    Jeans manufactured to incorporate rips and/or fading for an intentionally worn-in look. Typically done by hand so that each pair is unique.

    Enzyme Wash

    An eco-friendly stonewashing process that uses organic proteins instead of pumice stones. These enzymes eat away at the indigo on top of the yarn, exposing the white core.

    Flat Busted Seam

    A traditional blue jean finish where the out-seam (the seam that runs vertically down the outside leg) is open and flat, making the garment fit better and wear well over time.

    Garment Dyed

    Dyeing an entire finished garment, as opposed to dyeing the yarn prior to weaving. Typically, if pocket linings are the same color as the denim, the piece was garment dyed.

    Grinding

    Using a mechanical device to chip away at the fabric to break the yarns and create small tears. Most commonly used at bottom hems and pocket edges, grinding or nicks may also be applied to any part of the denim.

    Hand

    The term used to describe the way denim fabric feels. Dependent upon the jean's finish and wash, the hand can feel crisp, soft, smooth, springy, stiff, cool, warm, etc.

    Hand-Sanding

    A fabric finishing process whereby jeans are individually sanded with real sandpaper to make the surface softer or frayed.

    Indigo

    The dye used to color denim. Indigo continually fades because of its inability to penetrate fibers completely.

    Inseam

    The measurement from the crotch to the leg opening, indicating the length of the jeans. The longer the inseam, the taller the jeans.

    Jean

    A term derived from “bleu de Gênes,” the French translation for “the blue of Genoa,” the Italian city where the world's first denim trousers were manufactured to be worn by sailors. The durable cotton fabric, however, was sourced from Nîmes, France, and consequently was referred to as its origin—“de Nîmes” (of Nimes). In the mid-1800s, denim arrived in America on the legs of hardworking California miners, but it wasn't until the 1950s that denim gained mainstream popularity and the term “jeans” was coined by teenagers. The rest is a rich, blue-hued history.

    Laundry

    The finishing house where unwashed jeans get their distinctive look by washing, stonewashing, sandblasting, garment dyeing, finishing, ripping, patching, and hand-sanding each individual pair.

    Left Hand Twill

    Left hand twill, also known as "S twill," has a grain line that runs from the top left-hand corner of the fabric to the bottom right (the opposite of right hand twill). Originally used by Lee denim, S twill is used by many premium denim companies today. Left hand twill tends to wear down softer than right hand twill, creating a softer handfeel after washing. Left hand twill also has different wear patterns, as the fabric may highlight streaks or vertical fading.

    Mercerized

    An industrial process used to increase denim's luster, strength, softness, and affinity to dye.

    Overdye

    A dyeing process that adds extra color to dyed denim for a distinctive look. For example, “dirty” denim is often created by applying a yellow overdye to specific areas.

    Potassium Application

    Potassium can yield very dramatic, high-contrast wear patterns. Potassium (PP) is a purplish color when applied, but after being neutralized by special solutions, turns treated areas white. PP can either be applied as a spray for overall wear patterns, or by brush or sponge to target specific areas.

    Pumice Stones

    Volcanic stones that are tumbled together with jeans in the stonewashing process. The strength and weight of pumice is perfect for wearing down and softening denim, with different size stones producing unique results.

    Quality Assurance

    The series of rigorous quality checks made to ensure that every pair of Lucky Brand jeans meets the highest quality standards. Samples are examined during pre-sewing, after assembly and again after washing, through various steps of hand-measuring and visual validations.

    Resin Treated

    A chemical process that locks jeans' indigo dye and fibers to create a unique finish. Jeans are crumpled, treated with resin and then baked. As the solution dries, a chemical reaction occurs that binds the denim fibers together and holds the exact structure of the molecules.

    Right Hand Twill

    Right hand twill, also known as "Z twill," was first made famous by Levi Strauss & Co. as their standard fabric—and is the most common twill weave used in denim today. You'll recognize right hand twill by the upward direction of the diagonal twill on the face of the fabric, running from the lower left toward upper right. Right hand twill has a flatter, smoother surface compared to other twill fabrics.

    Rigid or Raw Denim

    Denim that is unwashed and contains no stretch elements (most jeans have already been worn-in and washed before you wear them). If your jeans are rigid, it means that the denim fabric has never been washed, and the indigo dye is not set. It also means that you can break in your jeans to achieve unique wear patterns.

    Ringspun

    A process whereby yarn is produced by using a “ring” for spinning. Individual fibers are fed onto the end of the yarn, adding strength, softness and irregularities for an authentic, vintage look.

    Rise

    The distance from the crotch to the button at the waist, rise indicates where jeans sit on a person's body. A low-rise means that jeans sit closer to the hips, while high-rise jeans sit closer to the waist. Measurements exclude the waistband.

    Sandblasting

    A pre-wash laundry process during which jeans are blasted with sand in order to abrade them and create a well-worn appearance.

    Selvedge or Selvage Denim

    Originally called “self-edge,” the selvedge is a slim woven band on either end of the denim fabric that prevents the edge from unraveling. Denim mills have historically used various colors to distinguish between manufacturers. You can find the selvedge on the out-seam (the seam that runs vertically down the outside leg) of jeans.

    Silhouette

    The cut of the leg, a silhouette can be tapered, bootcut, flared or straight, to name a few.

    Stonewash

    The most common way to wash denim is with pumice stones. Pumice stones, in combination with enzymes (and sometimes bleach), are added to the wash to abrade the denim. Water temperature, stone size and total load time all affect the final appearance.

    Stretch Denim

    Stretch denim contains spandex for versatility and comfort. Conforming to the body, stretch jeans give more throughout the day, but return to their original size after washing.

    3D Machine

    This machine creates a more natural look for washed denim. A denim technician starts with resin-dipped jeans on the 3D machine. Bending jeans on the mannequin helps to create natural whiskers, chevron and back-knee whisker patterns. Once the jeans meet the designer's specifications, the technician seals the jeans in heat-locked bags and steams them at 200 degrees. After this process, the jeans are laid out for a cooling period. After they've cooled, natural crease patterns are highlighted with chalk, indicating precisely where they will be handsanded to achieve an authentic, broken-in look. Each machine can only make 15-20 pairs of jeans a day.

    Tacks

    A labor-intensive process whereby fabric is gathered and stapled into place. After being washed and treated, the tack is removed, producing a gathered, lightly dyed area. Tacks and gathers create personality and add unique qualities to each pair of jeans.

    Twill

    The diagonal lines that are formed by denim weave. In a left-hand twill, the grain lines run from the top left-hand corner of the fabric to the bottom right. Left-hand twills often have a softer hand than right-hand twills, where the grain lines run from the top right-hand corner to the bottom left.

    Waist

    The circumference of the waistband. Different styles may fit the waist differently.

    Wash

    The sum of all the elements that go into the processing of a denim garment, giving it a distinctive appearance.

    Weight

    The grade of denim per yard of fabric at a 29-inch width. Lucky Brand jeans typically weigh 13 ounces per square yard.

    Whiskering

    The horizontal creases and fading at the crotch, back of knees and hems caused naturally or artificially. Whisker patterns are hand-scraped with sandpaper and then stonewashed.

    Yoke

    The V-shaped seam on the back of jeans that connects the waistband to the legs and gives curve to the seat.
